I’m still a little bit confused, is just using the VPN on your personal device enough to hide what you’re doing from your ISP and anyone else? I know you can connect a VPN to both the router and device, but I only have one for my device.
If I give it a 👍 wont that start you tracking me?.....or or did you first start tracking me when..... You ahhh... Percieved my arrival into being?
Too late....!.. Ok 👌 "👍 ".... Both "signs of the devil"
😂 no just kidding.. Let the tracking....begin.
I highly recommend anyone who is considering purchasing a VPN service look for one which is outside 12 eyes jurisdiction - stay away from things like Pia or nordvpn.
Personally I use blackVPN which has its jurisdiction in HK.
Your system time can also help to give your location away, and your browser knows your system time and will tell anybody. You can't pretend you're in germany if your pc is set to gmt. This is not so much of an issue if you just want to mask your exact location. Also ISPs are likely to force your traffic through their dns servers even if you use a vpn, and this will give your location away to anyone watching you. ipleak.com is a great website for seeing what can be seen about you when your vpn is up or down.
So if I use a public WiFi hotspot, and I first connected to my vpn, then went to PayPal, what would a potential hacker see, just the vpn server I'm connected to? Nothing else? The hacker can't then follow the trail from the vpn server onto PayPal?
Whatismyipaddress site is so "accurate" that it missed my location by just 97 km, not that i want it to know exact address to the point but they are way off and while we are at it what is the best fastest VPN to use cause it is hard to choose cause the all advertise them self the same just the words or sentences order is shuffled a bit but it is all we the fastest securest no logs high speed hihg bla bla but who know what reality looks like from their perspective so any input is appreciated greatly THANK YOU
I've not used specifically express vpn but I am also yet to hear about a vpn that keeps you permanently connected, not sure if that's even possible.So yes it is "like a switch", you get to choose if you are connected or not and to which server. I usually disable my vpn when playing online to avoid increased ping or lag spikes it can cause but connect back to it when I'm done gaming.
This is a feature of VPNs that isn't its original purpose. Useful information for individuals trying to hide or change their identity on the Internet, but NOT what people traditionally use VPNs for. The original idea was to connect private networks over the Internet to each other encrypted. It had nothing to do with "hiding" or changing your geolocation, but instead just connecting in a way that was secure and seemless.
Shit man if hackers figured out how to rout through different channels to steal stuff, we can do the same to frustrate them, just takes a little knowledge, I am personally not sold on these VPN's yet
we need to set a "mine field" for hackers
Hey guys, there is always a need for a VPN so for that we have compiled together our http://bestvpnnetworks.com/ base on several factors that include the total number of server locations, dedicated and dynamic IP, client software, bandwidth caps, security, logging, customer support, and price.

Net neutrality hahahahahaha. Now vpn will just be used by everyone and Comcast, cia, nsa, will have no idea who is where. Love it. The market is always more advanced than the government. The USA government just messed up big time.
It has always confused me HOW a VPN comes in between the user and the ISP. The ISP is what connects the user to the internet in the first place. How can a VPN encrypt data before it is sent out if the ISP carries that data out?
This VPN service “fetching zonet com” (Google it) worked perfect. I did not have issue setting it up and it`s fast. I recently renewed my 1 year membership to the service. This vpn provider is my personal favorite it protects my personal computer from online hackers and viruses on the internet!
This VPN service “fetching zonet com” (Google it) gets an excellent ranking from me. I started using it 6 months ago. I had trouble loading it many times before but I managed to repair it with the aid of their online service. The activation of the software program is easy and I didn`t have problem with hooking up. I recommend the service, I love it!
